    I like the ghettoness of the fan just plonked on the 290x hehe :)

    Also I think you may have missed your optical drive tray when you tried putting in that disc???

    What a mess, oh well, that messy PSU has served me since 2011 and still working very well, no issues at all, the missing part is the H80i Corsair cooling solution I'm putting this month when it's available.

    Bought a new PSU (Cougar GX-1050) to replace my legendary Zalman ZM-1000HP in my main rig. That thing has been powering my main rig since the middle of 2008 or 2009 I think it was. It's been so long I've forgotten haha. I still prefer the look of my old Zalman - dat paint job - even if it is really, REALLY long.

    I was researching the Macho, came across an article that suggested that Thermalright and a number of other manufacturers such as Prolimatech, Phanteks, Scythe, Noctua use a convex base that actually deforms the lid. http://www.silentpcreview.com/article1366-page2.html
    Did you install the 120mm AIO after the Macho first? If the Macho performs better this might be why. I wonder if my Phanteks is the same way. Their I7 test cpu looks really warped though. The corners are all rounded off!

    Nice, those some 5870's like listed in your specs (Specs list one is why I ask :p)?

    Also I love seeing so many people with that massive cooler, I had not seen many people in some time with that specific cooler which it is such an awesome air cooler. Its well designed to work in more situations than many I run across as far as ram clearance and everything, hows your temps going? I also had the Antec Kuhler 920 which I sold to a friend recently on a machine I tried awhile back (Went for a AIO system at one point using a Kuhler 920 for the CPU and 2 PNY GTX 580 LC editions to see what would happen.

    Cool system, very clean interior!

    Took my rig apart to add the external radiator to the loop and clean the gpu block and my 780 stopped displaying when it had the block on, works fine with the stock cooler on.

    I had it looking really nice with the tubing going out through a pci pass through but it started leaking so it got binned, had to do it the fugly way just to get back up and running.

    Now i've got a 360mm monsta + 200mm Phobya rad cooling just a 4770k!, temp setup for now, had enough messing for today, time for some beer.

    The hottest core is over 90C in Battlefield 4 64p.. :D But I don't care, as long it won't crash! And yeah I had an AIO too (Antec 620 V4 with 2 GentleTyphoon 1450rpm fans), but I like the air more.. :)

    And thanks! :)

    edit: And yeah my PC is just like I had put in to the specs :)
